To prospectively compare intraoperative subtraction pachymetry flap thickness measurements and postoperative anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) flap thickness measurements in eyes undergoing laser in situ keratomileusis flap creation with a 150 kHz femtosecond laser and a 60 kHz femtosecond laser.
Byers Eye Institute at Stanford
Each patient received wavefrontguided LASIK using the AMO Intralase iFS 150 femtosecond laser in one eye and the AMO Intralase FS 60 femtosecond laser in their fellow eye. Both lasers used a programmed flap thickness of 105 um with a 9.0 mm superior hinge. Flap thickness was assessed with an ultrasound pachymeter intraoperatively and anterior segment ocular coherence tomography (ASOCT) postoperatively at 1 month.
Fiftytwo eyes of 26 subjects were available for analysis. Mean intraoperative flap thickness by ultrasound pachymetry was 98.0 ±13.5 ?m (range: 68 to 149 ?m) and 94.0 ±14.4 ?m (range: 59 to 126 ?m) in the iFS 150 and the FS 60 femtosecond laser treated eyes respectfully. Mean central flap thickness by anterior segment OCT was 104.0 ± 5.28 ?m (range: 82 to 111 ?m) and 105.6 ± 4.89 ?m (range: 99 to 115 ?m) postoperatively at 1 month in the iFS 150 and the FS 60 femtosecond laser treated eyes respectfully.
There were no statistically significant differences in achieved flap thickness between the 150 kHz and 60 kHz femtosecond lasers when measuring intraoperative subtraction pachymetry or postoperative anterior segment OCT. Postoperative ASOCT measurements varied less than intraoperative subtraction pachymetry measurements.
